Realme phone with Snapdragon 460 SoC could launch soon

Realme could run on a phone with a Snapdragon 460 processor. An unknown device has appeared on the Geekbench benchmark website, along with its key specs indicating there may be the latest Qualcomm processor under the hood. The amount of RAM is 4GB, as shown in the listing. Everything else is unclear at the moment, but if we take a look at the processor and RAM, we might be looking at a budget-segment phone from Realme.

The Geekbench listing has the Realme phone with model number RMX2194. Its processor is listed as “Bengal”, a term associated with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 460 processor. It also shows that there will be Android 10 software on the device and that the processor will have eight cores clocked at a base speed of 1.80 GHz. This is all. We know nothing about this new Realme device beyond this point. But we can make a wild guess considering the recent releases.

Realme has two phones in its kitty that are powered by the Snapdragon 460 processor: Realme C17 and Realme C15 Qualcomm Edition. This new RMX2194 could be another in this category. But while we assume that, let’s not forget that Realme has confirmed that the remaining C-series phones could also get their own versions with Qualcomm chipsets. Now that the C15 has it, the left ones are C12 and C11. Perhaps this device is one of these two, namely C12 Qualcomm Edition and C11 Qualcomm Edition, respectively.

A Geekbench listing usually means the company is preparing the phone for release. The next step in this process is to get the device certified by the regulatory body of the country where the device is launched. Since the C series is not available in China, it is unlikely that we will see a TENAA or 3C certification. But it is more likely that Realme will launch this device in other regions of South Asia, including Thailand, Indonesia, India and Bangladesh. We may soon start seeing certifications for the RMX2194 from at least these countries.

This is also, more or less, the build up for the launch. We may soon get more information on this device, including display details, camera specs, and battery configurations. This could happen over the next few days or even weeks until Realme finally confirms that this phone will launch on a certain date.

Separately, Realme recently unveiled the C15 Qualcomm Edition in India with the same Snapdragon 460 processor this device is listed with. The original smartphone packs a MediaTek Helio G35 SoC, which is good enough for light tasks only based on my experience with the phone. The rest of the specs are all the same.

Realme is allegedly working on a new phone that will run on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 460 processor.
